of reprocessing in order to, for example, provide domestic energy, nuclear energy plants. many countries in the world have nuclear energy. but only a handful actually process it themselves. most just decide to buy it already processed from abroad. we have agreements and we have arrangements with countries all over the planet that do that. only a handful actually retain the capacity to reprocess it or -- or -- or to enrich uranium or reprocess plutonium. when you see a country -- when you see a country announce that they are going to invest money, time and energy in developing a processing -- a reprocessing or an enrichment exaibilityd, that raises -- capability, that raises red flags and here's why. because while you only need a certain level of enrichment to be able to provide nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and a little bit of a higher level in order to be able to use it for medical isotopes, the exact same machines, the exact same facilities, the exact same scientists are the exact same runs that can also reprocess or enrich to an even higher level to use in a weapon. the story o
that all he is interested in is domestic energy for peaceful purposes. the problem is that's not what's happening. what's happening is that the united states, through the state department and this administration, i think de facto has already but if not are on the verge of agreeing to allow iran to keep in place its enrichment and reprocessing capabilities, and i'm going to explain to you why that's a problem. if that capability is still there, if they retain all the facilities necessary for enrichment and reprocessing, even if they agree to limit to to a certain level for now at any point in time in the future they can ratchet it back up and they can go on to develop a weapon. in fact, the design for a weapon is the easiest part unfortunately of all of this. the hardest part is reaching the technological capability to enrich uranium to a certain point so you can weaponize it. if you allow them to keep all the equipment, all the technology, all the scientists, all that infrastructure in place, then at any point in the future when they decide now it's time for a weapon, they can break o
